9:00 pm
you don't know what i'm talking about unless you know what invidious means. please look it up. thanks for watching us tonight. always remember, the spin stops here. we're definitely looking out for you. tonight, some gop ib sinsid say the republican majority in the house could be in jeopardy, but our political experts are here to laying out the plan for maintaining majority in 2014. >> we need to have questions answered and people need to be held accountable. >> not everyone's laughing. but should he face a lifetime ban for this act. or is this another example of the left wing double standard. the controversy in california that allows
9:01 pm
transgender students to choose which bathroom theyen watt to use. >> i did an embarrassing thing that hurt my family. >> all that and my exclusive interview with anthony weiner's former mistress. hannity starts right here, right now. the disaster known as obama care continues to unravel as the health care overhaul continues to be delayed. for the very first time, we are hearing from some republican insiders that the gop majority in the house of representatives could be in jeopardy come 2014. that is unless the party rolls out an aggressive plan to save america. now, according to byron, new york of the washington examiner, behind the scenes, some republicans are now worried that keeping the house is not such a done deal after all. so how can that upset be avoided? republican candidates don't need to tell voters what bads job the
9:02 pm
president is doing, they already know that. what gop candidates need to do, is convince voters they would do a better job 2457b the democrats. i couldn't agree any more. in my opinion, that task begins with one thing. defunding obama care. because today alone, there are two brand new pieces of evidence proving this law is nothing more than a legislative train wreck, it's not ready for prime time. now, first, we are learning that the president has delayed yet another very costly provision of his health care overhaul for one year. this one deals with placing caps on out of pocket insurance costs. but his unilateral decision to alter this law that was passed by congress is raising serious constitutional questions. let's watch. >> the president doesn't get to write legislation. it's illegal and unconstitutional for him to try to change legislation by himself. if he says to you, you're a political contributor of mine, and i know obama care's going to be hard on you, that's not
9:03 pm
legal. >> in addition to this apparent unconstitutional and illegal delay. senator rand paul was talking about the administration's decision to exempt many federal employees from obama care. you heard me right. that government, those officials at the white house and other agencies that are tasked with implementing this law will be able to keep their current plan. this is exactly the type of bureaucratic hypocrisy that republican candidates need to expose come 2014. if they're able to do that, not only is the house safe, the senate is in play for the gop. joining me no to help examine the future of both parties and react to these latest obama care developments. we have austin goolsby and david limbaugh. austin, isn't it just morally wrong that these guys exempt
9:04 pm
themselves from the very laws and burdens they're placing on the rest of us? isn't that wrong? >> in general, yeah, i'm very skeptical of that. but i -- in this case, i think -- >> i think you're leaving out one major part, which is in the normal obama care, people would qualify for subsidies who go into the exchanges. but the people working in congress would not qualify for the tax credits. they are in a were were in a totally different circumstance than people in the normal situation. >> for me, not for thee. >> i partially disagree with byron, who i have a lot of respect for we never take for granted a congressional victory. all seats are up. we can never take them for granted. we need not to coast but to go in aggressively and campaign and give voters a choice. more importantly, i disagree
9:05 pm
with his point that voters are aware of obama's failed record. my brother rush talks about t s obama tieing himself to these disastrous policies that are destroying the country. we either have to make a negative case or a positive. of course i give a positive case, a progrowth plan. defunding obama care and presenting an alternative. >> first there was the delay of obama care's medicare cuts. then there was the employer mandate delay. now we have this new development i spoke of. you're the lawyer, can the president just unilaterally decide to change the law of the land. >> the contempt he's shown for the constitution and rule of law is appalling in so many areas. on this obama care, it's frightening. there's been seven different delays.
9:06 pm
remember the thousands of waivers? remember the employer mandate that he exempted and he delayed and he did not delay the employee mandate zrim in a tore illy. that's got to be unconstitutional. he doesn't have the authority to do it. mr. goolsbee, i wish you would condemn president obama -- he has no authority to change a law that congress passed and he signed. >> well, he has no authority to change a law. but with -- if the law gives the administration authority to the administration for the law. they do have the right to administer it however the law sees fit. there has been other than on this program, there has been a serious legal challenge of the constitutionality of the administrative changes there. all they're talking about is a delay -- >> so that the insurance companies can get their computer systems sufficient so that they can add up what all the out of
9:07 pm
pocket costs are -- >> did you guys even care, a bunch of academic pointy heads sitting around their tables devising this law? did you have any idea what it would do? you didn't. they have no idea. no fundamental understanding of what that law contained, they still don't. they're finding out, and it's being imposed on the american people. except that obama says he won't impose it. >> i don't agree with that. i don't agree with that. >> i want to ask you this question. >> okay. and i'm not tag teaming david here, i want an answer to this. >> this law has a specific law. with very specific dates in it, tell me how the president can unilaterally pick and choose what parts of the law he's going do uphold. he doesn't have the right to do that without going back to congress, austin. >> i'm not a lawyer. david is a lawyer, i'm not going to weigh-in on what the
9:08 pm
legality -- i know that the administration of laws, when there are administrative delays or if the parties that you're trying to require to do something are not able to comply with the law, that there is room -- complainings in the -- >> you're making this up as you go, that's not the way the laws in this country work, david? >> he can't selectively enforce or not enforce this law. the public has a right to -- >> look, the -- >> what? >> the argument that the waivers you're talking about were politically based is completely bogus, it's not true at all. the waiver of the employer mandate for one year is so that the employers are able to get their computer systems set so that they can -- >> that's just a smoke screen. it's to buy off their opposition until the 2014 election, which is what he's doing with congress. exempting them from 5,000 for staff members, $11,000.
9:09 pm
this is real money they don't have to pay, and these are the people, the wretches who pass this bill. the very people who passed it are exempting themselves, one year, this is big money. $11,000. >> i respect david's passion on this. remember, the people that were working in congress, the staffers were not eligible for the tax credits that everybody else who goes into the exchange is eligible for. they weren't in the same situation that everyone else was, even to the beginning. they were greatly disadvantaged. >> i want to go back to the legal side of this, we're talking about the wheres in 2014, where's the legal challenge. that needs to come up. >> mr. levin is pointed out in his new book, we can't trust the supreme court to even overrule obama care in the big picture. we've got to try. of course we do. but in the meantime, we've got to try to defund it, and i say to these establishment people who are always cautioning
9:10 pm
restraint waiting for the next election, we have got to start fighting. we have got to start inspiring the conservative grassroots to get out there and show them we stand for something. and even if we fail in this obama care defunding, we give them a us. >> austan, we'll give you the last word. >> sounds like the recontract with america. i'm all for it. >> condemn what president obama did please. on this unilateral implementation, will you condemn it? >> no, i will not condemn it, i told you, i think it's just an administrative delay. >> it's real money. you have semantics. >> good to see you both. rodeo clown who was pictured wearing a mask that looked like president obama has been banned from future bull riding competitions in the state of missouri. we're going to explain what he did, examine the left wing double standard when it comes to presidential parodies, and later, anthony weiner's cyber mistress joins me in studio to talk about her unusual

9:15 pm
>> president obama. >> i know i'm a clown, he's just running around acting like he is one, doesn't know he is one. >> as soon as this bull comes out, don't you move, he's going to get -- >> oh, yeah, i'm ready. he's going to get you. he's going to get you. >> so the missouri state fair gets about a half million taxpayer dollars, after people said they were offended the clown was suspended calling it an unconscionable stunt.
9:16 pm
steve webb who was the chairman of the missouri legislative black caucus. welcome both of you. why are you so offended by this? >> well, sean, first, let me thank you for having me here. >> you're very welcome. and i am not -- i'm no longer the chairman of the missouri legislative black caucus. i am the chairman of the democratic caucus. >> i apologize. >> i am -- i believe that we kind of centered this around the rodeo clown. in my opinion, the rodeo clown is only a scapegoat here. i may not even agree with banning this guy for life for doing any -- from doing any more rodeos. but i'm offended because here in missouri, we are engaging in a directive culture that says it's okay to do these types of things. >> explain in more detail what offends you. >> it offends me that anyone
9:17 pm
would make a mochrie in that way of the president of the united states. >> really? >> and i am under the opinion that it's more. it was a racial content. >> how was it racial? >> i mean -- >> how is it racial? >> sean, you didn't -- i heard you say a few things. but you didn't say what someone walked up to the clown and played with his lips. i mean, it's offensive, whether it's barack obama or george bush. it's offensive. >> you mentioned this, i'm going to go back, and i can show you, and i'll show our audience here images, for example, like google, if you've googled bush mask, 7 million hits show up. i have a picture here of somebody in a george bush mask that literally says, kick my ass. that's on this picture. let me put up, we have pictures of nixon, in a nixon mask.
9:18 pm
we have 43, bush 41, we have a clinton mask, a reagan mask, seems like every president before him has had a mask that wasn't exactly flattering. >> sean, i'm pretty certain there are masks of you, it's not about the mask, it's about -- you can wear an obama mask for halloween, a hillary clinton mask. it's about the racial content behind the stunt. it's not about the clown and it's not about -- it's the racial content or context behind the stunt. >> well, i would tell you that i don't agree with the let's run down president obama with the bull comment. i think that was beyond the appropriateness for the event. look, we have had presidential masks out there, we've had parodies, we've had it in that state before. one of the things i find is hypocrisy is, i remember when condoleezza rice had the
9:19 pm
birthing tubes cartoon drawn about her, there was no outcry, when michael steele had the black face done of him, there was no outcry. just this last election cycle i had a gold tooth painted on to my face and i was wearing boxing gloves, there was an outcry. furthermore, when you have senator harry reid who referred to the president as being light skinned and also speaking without a negro dialect. you had then senator joe biden saying that president obama was -- senator obama was clean and articulate, i think that, you know, some people need to check themselves and stop cherry picking what they believe is racially offensive. >> let me ask you, you just heard those comments, did you publicly condemn them, the things that colonel west just mentioned? >> lit me say this, i'm a representative in the state of missouri. i condemn what happened with missouri -- >> i'm not asking -- is there any one of those -- you did not
9:20 pm
answer my question. any one of those instances, where i think you could argue they were racial? did you speak out on any one of them? >> again, those instances are wrong. i'll say it now. >> did you speak up at the time? >> i will continue to say that these things didn't happen in this state. i'm talking about an incident that happened in this state. >> i'm not going to ask you again. joe biden, the vice president and he made those comments, harry reid is the senate majority leader, did you speak out at the time when those were national issues? >> i had a problem with some of those things. >> did you speak out. >> whether or not you caught it nationally, you probably didn't. >> but you spoke out publicly here, which is one of the reasons why we invited you on the show. >> sean, wrong is wrong. whether it's obama or george bush. wrong is wrong. >> you know, look, colonel west, i -- we've actually covered on
9:21 pm
this program, colonel west, the treatment of black conservativ conservatives, you're right about the ad that you and i spoke out about it at the time, a few others of us did, but i wonder in this case, if we're talking about a stupid clown and a mask that people are making fun of, we've done this with every president as i've just shown here. do you see any racial connotation here? >> like i said, i don't agree with the statement the announcer made about let's run president obama over with the bull. this is something that's been done with all presidents. we know that h.w. bush, there was a clown of him in the missouri fair. there have been masks of president obama in shows like trueblood. let's start talking about some of the real issues, some of the things we see with obama care. and, of course, the most important thing i see in the

the three 15-year-old boys who viciously attacked an unidentified 13-year-old victim on a florida school bus last month, appeared before a judge for their preliminary hearing today. prosecutors are seeking nine months of court supervision for the suspects as well as no contact with the victim and drug testing. theyen watt to play the surveillance video of the attack before any sentencing takes place.
9:27 pm
>> all i can say, he had his consequences already. this is his life. we have to convict him. it's just the way it is. my son ain't never been no bad person. he just got mixed in with bad people, bad group, that's it. >> is he sorry? >> he's sorry. >> is he in trouble? >> he's in trouble, this is the last built of it right now. >> all three were charged with aggravated battery. one was charged with unarmed robbery for stealing the victim's money. >> here with reaction are talk show host basal smith. >> it was a vicious beating, i was amazed when i saw it. i am shocked that -- i would hope that the parents really take these kids to task.
9:28 pm
and, you know, it sort of sends a larger message. one of the things i've been concerned about for quite some time, is that a lot of these young people, particularly with social media internet, a lot of these websites that are popping up, theyen watt their fame, they want their 15 minutesif you can call it that. >> so violent. >> use these opportunities to promote themselves. >> this is like -- i mean, this is a no mercy just beat down of this kid by three. after they're done punching him, the kicking begins, these are 15-year-old kids, pretty strong kids, what's your reaction? >> well, it's brutal, it seems to be that these guys are -- i can still hear it in the monitor. these guys are sort of did the missing the route cause of this, which is the destruction of the family this idea of racially provoked violence, because this kid was doing nothing.
9:29 pm
if this situation were reversed it would be front and center all over the place. >> we spent a lot of time in this country discussing -- a lot of people wanted to make the trayvon case racial. even the family said it wasn't racial. if this was reversed, you know and i know, there would be a different response. >> there would be, and i would also say that i want there to be bigger responses when we have the killings that we do in chicago, for example. i think a lot of that stuff gets swept under the rug. >> why? >> part of the problem there are a lot of folks that are not addressing the root cause of the problem. i don't think it's just the breakdown of the family, that gets used a lot. there's a lot more to it quite frankly. this was an extraordinarily. >> there is a lot more to it
9:30 pm
than that. we have a president that's stoking this kind of racial violence and racial insensitivity, to the point where in florida, for example, they have tiers of education systems for blacks. blacks only have to pass tests at 74%, asians at 90%. we have a president who says, if black kids commit violence, let's change the sentencing laws. we have places in schools in chicago and other big cities where they say, hey listen, we have too many black kids getting in trouble per capita, we need to start finding reasons for other kids to get in trouble. >> we have a president that calls sandra flock. has he said anything about the mayor of san diego? no. we have a president that gets involved in trayvon, this is widely publicized. has he spoken out here? >> he hasn't spoken out here, and i wish he would, quite frankly. >> or the san diego mayor? >> i do think what's happening in san diego, democrats need to speak up more on that. >> where's obama on that?
9:31 pm
>> i want him to speak up more on that. i would also say, i don't think he's stoking the flames of racism, he's not doing that. >> i didn't say that. >> no, your guest said that. i don't think that that's believable or appropriate. >> it's just patently untrue. we've had racism in this country. we have discrimination in this country. a lot of the problems that communities of color are facing are not -- did not happen just because of obama. >> but let me go to kevin. why does he call sandra and not speak out about bob. 14 women now have accused him. why does he speak out about trayvon and not call the family of this 13-year-old boy that got this beat something. >> sean, we just posted a blog on my website, where barack obama is in martha's vineyard right now, hanging out with self-separating blacks. blacks who live on martha's v vineyard who will not associate with whites. he's not stoking this type of
9:32 pm
activity. the reason why he doesn't speak out about something like this is for exactly what i said, he does not care that -- as opposed to being a president who could start healing the racial divide in this country. he's decided he's going to let that divide exist. he should be right now, front and center of this particular issue saying, these teenaged kids should not be doing that. >> i can't have a problem with george bush spending most of his days in texas in the western white house than in the white house in washington, d.? the president took a couple days on vacation. i'm confident that he as well as the majority of his office, whoever is in d.c. right now at the white house is doing work on our behalf. >> no, what you're -- >> i'm not saying that george w. bush who had most of the staff. >> what you can't -- what you are not confident about is exactly what i just told you, obama is hanging out with black separatists at martha's vineyard on his vacation. >> black separatists?
9:33 pm
>> i don't know what that is. >> a person who decides that they don't want to be involved with white people on the island. the person who was in charge of npr who has no need for white people. >> what? >> this is the problem we have in this country if we want to keep making these distinctions. >> i have no no idea what that means. >> explain what you mean about that. i have no idea what you mean about martha's vineyard. >> there's a group of people that barack obama's hanging out with on martha's vineyard who are at -- they have said to themselves, we don't want to hang out with white folks. we are black people on this ian lad and we want to -- he's attending all of these issues. all these events with these blacks. >> i have no idea what that means. >> we're going to have to leave it there, guys. coming up next, the controversial bill in california signed into law, allows transgender students to choose which bathroom theyen watt to use. is that appropriate? we'll debate that next.

excellent role models for young women and young girls. >> that's not what i'm saying. >> that's not bullying in politics. it's different as a child. i was born a girl, i am a girl. i am a woman, i'm happy to be so. i don't understand this mind-set. but i do understand the struggle and speaking to the transgender children and talking to the adults who struggled as children. bullying is a huge problem and it can have fatal results in our country. >> here's something else to consider as well. how are you going to feel if a girl's kicked off a sports team by someone who's a boy, they're stronger, different muscle bass, bone density. these are things we have to consider as well. >> we have to go. ♪
